Miami East High School Assistant Principal Scott Donaldson shakes hands with senior Corey Monnin during a graduation rehearsal Friday at Hobart Arena.

Can Tornado Alley become safer? In the wind-swept prairie called Tornado Alley, the scene is eerily familiar: Homes smashed to splinters. Trees and telephone poles snapped like twigs. Piles of bricks, overturned cars and dazed survivors sifting through rubble in search of a precious photo or heirloom. A town in ruins. On Monday, it was Moore, Okla. Two years ago, it was Joplin, Mo. There’s a pattern to the aftermath of these deadly disasters: Clean-up. A steely determination. Vows to rebuild. And urgent questions about what can be done to shield tornadoprone communities from the worst ravages of the next monster storm that comes calling.

‘No Toughness, No Championship’ East senior overcomes odds to graduate BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer


Like any proud mother, Kelly Monnin, along with family and friends, rushes to prepare her home for the crowd of well-wishers that soon will fill her family’s home on Loy Road, near Piqua. Her in-laws were busy outside mowing the grass and weeding the flower beds. Two days before today’s party, large, empty punch containers stood ready to be filled in the bar area inside of an outbuilding filled with exercise equipment and

sports mementos. Pictures and scrapbooks are scattered about, waiting to be gazed at and thumbed through while guests visit with one another. Kelly wears a royal blue Miami East Viking T-shirt with white lettering, which features her son’s football jersey number, No. 61, emblazoned on a football. Kelly doesn’t sit long before rushing out the door to grab her son’s senior memory book. As she leaves the room, the

back of the Viking-blue T-shirt reads: “No Toughness, No Championship.” “That’s always been my motto since my freshman year of football,” Cory said as he watched his mother walk out the door. Kelly returns minutes later with his senior memory book, a senior English project, filled with pictures and essays of his days as a Miami East Viking. “I’m going to miss high school,” Cory shared. “It was a lot of fun. This is a big step, though.” “It’s huge!” Kelly exclaimed as • See MONNIN on 2

Preparations are under way for the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover mural, but rather than be painted on the Troy Masonic Temple, the concert badge will be displayed as a prefabbed vinyl banner facing North Cherry Street. The cost for the project remains at $7,000. “They’re stripping it down and repainting any areas that need to be repaired on the stucco,” Director of Public Service and Safety Patrick Titterington said Friday. At Troy Planning Commission, a few residents had voiced their opposition to the mural, related to its cost and use of the building facade. However, Titterington said the decision for the vinyl banner was made as a long-term cost-saving measure as opposed to serving as a compromise. “That was one of the options we had already been looking at, and when we saw the impact (the paint) would have on the building, we figured it would be easier to take off after the time it ran than to try to whitewash it off,” Titterington said. “It will save us money in the long run because we won’t have to go back and repair it and repaint it.” The banner will be taken down at the end of 2015, city officials announced at a Troy Planning Commission meeting. It is funded by a $7,000 grant from The Troy Foundation, which was arranged by Titterington and Mayor Michael Beamish. Troy City Council did not vote on the matter.

Holiday ■ CONTINUED FROM 1 officially kicking off the “Click-It-Or-Ticket” campaign throughout Ohio. The extra Miami County deputies will work a combined 120 hours in overtime and will be on patrol for traffic enforcement purposes only. During this time frame, deputies will be issuing only citations and offering no warnings. The extra deputies are being funded from a grant the sheriff’s office received late last year from the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services. The federal monies, which are administered by the state, also reimburse some fuel costs. All motorists are reminded to buckle-up and have a designated driver if they choose to drink.

Monnin ■ CONTINUED FROM 1 of Corey’s friends and family. Today, that huge step is being celebrated at the Monnin household with hundreds of family and friends, better known as “Cory’s Crew.” IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE Three years ago, life changed for the entire Monnin family in the blink of an eye. On a Saturday afternoon, May 15, 2010, Cory set off on his moped to watch his younger sister Emma play softball. But Cory never made it to the ball diamond. Almost a mile away from home, Monnin was struck by a car while on his moped on the way to the game when a driver attempted to pass Monnin on TroySidney Road, near Peterson Road. Cory was immediately transported by Careflight to Dayton Children’s Medical Center with traumatic brain injuries so severe that doctors gave little hope to Kelly, her husband Mike and the Miami East community, as they all braced themselves for the worst. “It was unbelievably hard,” Kelly said. “We didn’t think he’d make it, so the nurses in the ICU let us have visitors — so many people came — we just didn’t know.” Monnin stabilized and was transported to Columbus’ Nationwide Children’s Hospital, where he slowly pulled out of his coma. “There was one point his therapist pull me aside and said she needed me to talk to Cory to give them some kind of response, so I just pleaded with Cory,” she said. “I kept telling him, ‘Cory, you’ve got to give me something, anything.’” After a few minutes, Cory slowly lifted his head and gazed at his mother. “That’s when I knew we were going to get through this — that was his way of saying, ‘I’m not done,’” she said. While Cory’s first means of communication were through eye blinks, it was enough for Kelly, family and friends to keep forging ahead. Kelly said initially doctors told her Cory would never walk or talk, let alone graduate from high school on time, due to his severe head injury. “With a severe head injury, they told me he’d be ‘locked in,’” she said. “At Nationwide, they gave me a button and said that’s how he’d communicate. But I hid that button each time and made him talk to me.” After months of physical

and occupational therapy, Cory’s first word he uttered was “Emma” as his younger sister, now a sophomore, fed him ice cream at his bedside. Kelly said they could hear Cory mumble through the sounds of the machines. “Did you hear something? We’d look around the room and listened for the sound again,” she said. “And we heard him say ‘Emma’ and we just knew we were on the right track. Moms just know. That was a great day.” In that initial mumble, Cory’s family saw the fight in the determined boy — the same boy who signed himself up for wrestling in junior high. “As parents, me and Mike would always say we would trade places with our kids any day,” Kelly said, choking up, recalling the long, exhausting days at Cory’s bedside three years ago. “Mom?” interrupted Cory, hearing the emotion in his mother’s voice. “Yes Cory?” “I love you, Mom.” “I love you, too,” Kelly replied, blinking back tears as she reached over to pat Cory on the leg. “They are such good kids, such good kids.” DAY ONE Walking across the stage at graduation Friday night, Cory was like hundreds of other high school graduates accepting their diplomas. “I just wanted to graduate with my class — that’s been my goal from day one,” Cory said. “I rolled right back to school. No breaks.” Nearly six months after the accident, “Day One” was Oct. 25, 2010, only four days after being released from Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus. Monnin returned his sophomore year in a wheelchair and back to class with the help from an aide and set out on the long road ahead. “Now she just carries my books,” Cory said of his assistant his senior year. Cory took summer classes to catch up with his graduation credits, along with his full class load each year. “It was his choice to go back,” Kelly said. “It was tough, unbelievably hard.” “I wanted to stay up with my friends,” Cory said. “Don’t get me wrong, the juniors are great. They just weren’t my class.” Cory credits two Miami East High School teachers, Barbara Minnich and Kristy Hurst, for keeping him on track in the classroom. “It was so hard to focus when I first got back,” Cory said. “Mrs. Hurst and Miss Minnich, they had my back.”

Both Hurst and Minnich echoed their sentiments of Cory. “He’s a typical teenage boy, that’s for sure,” Hurst said with a laugh. “Very determined, very hard worker.” Hurst said Cory could easily have delayed his graduation, but instead he told his teachers that his goal to was to graduate on time. “He worked to overcome a lot of challenges he faced,” Hurst said. “He had a lot of drive you don’t see a lot in teenagers.” Hurst said Cory came to class with a smile on his face “pretty much every day.” “One difficult day, I was pushing him to get an assignment done,” Hurst said. “He looked at me and smiled and said, ‘Mrs. Hurst, you know me as well as my mom!’” Hurst shared that Cory could take as much time as he liked to complete his high school diploma. “I told him I could be here for him until the day he turned 22, and he could take classes part-time,” she said. “But he said, ‘No way.’ I said, ‘Alright then, it’s going to be hard and there will be times it’s going to (be difficult), but let’s go.’” Hurst said from “Day One” in October 2010, she seen tremendous has growth from his sophomore year to a full class schedule his junior and senior years. “Sophomore year was definitely tough, but we worked through it,” Hurst said. Minnich said her time with Cory was enlightening, satisfying and rewarding. “Oh, his orneriness — typical teenage boy,” Minnich said. “His determination was amazing; he was not going to let anything hold him back. “It was a rewarding experience for me as an educator to have someone like Cory beat the odds,” she said.

and the cafeteria. “He took every day in stride,” said Tim Williams, Miami East High School principal. “The first time I saw Cory in the hospital bed, I just thought, ‘What are we going to do?’” Williams credits the friendship of the students and the camaraderie that can only be found in high school sports as part of Cory’s recovery. “Those kids rallied around Cory,” Williams said. “Our kids pushed him to class in his wheelchair, they boosted his spirits. And Cory, with that positive attitude, boosted ours.” Kelly also credits Cory’s friends and the coaching staff at Miami East High School, including football coaches Max Current and Mark Rose, wrestling coach Jason Sroufe and assistant baseball coach Nick Kirk, for keeping Cory’s spirits up and helping him stay involved in the sports he loves. “The kids kept him as part of the sports teams,” Williams said. “Cory is a sports fanatic — he loves baseball.” Kelly said hundreds of phone calls, visits and the community’s support kept the family focused on Cory’s recovery and each milestone was a celebration. “I have the best people around me,” Cory said. “My parents, my friends, my family — I’m a positive person but I have to be with everything I’ve been through.” Cory said a highlight of last year’s football season was being part of the coin toss at one of the football games. Cory attended each and every football game and was on the sidelines with his teammates wearing his No. 61 jersey each game. Cory recently was awarded the Ohio High School Athletic Association’s Courageous Student Award. “That was pretty cool,” Cory said. With thousands of hours of therapy, including swimming, weightlifting and equestrian therapy, Cory now is able to walk with the aid of a cane. Kelly said multiple coaches at Miami East High School went out of their way to keep Cory involved in the sports he loved. “They made sure he was invested,” Kelly said of the long list of coaches. “It meant so much to him, they are just outstanding men.”

the gym,” Cory said. “I definitely love being in the weight room.” With his personal motto of “No Toughness, No Championship,” Cory also tackled one of life’s biggest obstacles — forgiveness. Last summer during a session in a local gym with his personal trainer, Cory struck up a conversation with a young man. “I asked him if he liked sports and he said ‘Yeah, I do, man,’” he said. “I told him I used to play football, wrestling and baseball before my accident.” Cory said he saw the man get emotional before telling his trainer his name. The man Cory was talking to happened to be the driver of the car that caused his accident — Cody Shope. “I handled it,” Cory said. “I forgave him a long time before that.” Kelly shared that she couldn’t believe her son had come face-to-face with the man who turned their lives upside down. “God put that wheel in motion,” she said. “I couldn’t believe it. I was so blessed to have seen that.” Kelly credits time and maturity for Cory to have handled that encounter with grace. “There was a time that I felt I could have punched him, but what would have that done?” Cory said. “I forgive him. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t be here.” “It’s nice to be the bigger man sometimes,” Kelly said with a smile.

the people, ranging in age from 18 to nearly 70, Friday night marked their first prom. Women wore dresses donated by Emmy’s Bridal in Minster, April’s Bridal in Union and REM

employees, while suits were provided by SSA of Shelby County. Serving as DJs were Russ and Kramer Welker. Penny Kern, 48, of Zanesville attended the evening with her program director Rebecca Fetters, who said Kern enjoyed being all dressed up for prom. “One of the staff let her borrow a dress, and we helped her do her hair and put on makeup. She looked so excited and so happy,” Fetters said, adding, “Everyone in my caseload went to The Caroline before.” Across the room, Joey Toney, 19, danced with his date Cassie Dawson, 25. “We used to live in the same apartment complex,” said Dawson, who wore a glamorous purple dress. Both are served at home through REM Ohio. It isn’t unusual for individuals to form friendships through the program, Watkins noted, since they meet for activities as a group.

others brought their roommates or dates.” The theme of the night was Candyland, and accordingly the Riverside gym was decked out in balloons decorated to look like lollipops, along with other

colorful decorations. All attendees were decked out in prom attire. Evidenced by all the smiles in the room, the men and women appeared to be enjoying the music and dancing. For many of


SAILING ON TO VICTORY With his high school days behind him, Cory said he has new goals set for his future. “I’m very good at numbers,” Cory said. “I want to walk better and get stronger. I’m going to keep pushing through it.” Cory plans to take classes at Edison Community College and later transfer to Wright State University to pursue a degree in accounting. “If all goes to plan, I want to be an accountant,” he said. Kelly said she, along with her family and “Cory’s Crew,” will continue to find a way to make Cory’s goals happen. “We’ll continue to pray for a pathway,” she said. Kelly said she is in awe of the support that the Miami East community and the surround area provided their family over the last three years. “We are just so blessed,” she said. “This is the best place to raise a family. You have no idea when something like this happens to your family. We’ll do our best to pay it forward.”

Sprankell also worked with the United Nations High Commission for refugees in the Republic of Singapore, created a curriculum and designed a lab at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, consulted on the National Board of Medical Examiners, and has most recently been working with Calcutta Rescue schools in India. The third inductee was Jolene Johnson Sell, owner of Brick House Cafe in downtown West Milton. “She has been and always will be a West Milton girl and a Bulldog at heart,” Kochersperger said. Sell has catered the alumni dinners for the past six years and does extensive work with Hoffman United Methodist Church, Milton-Union schools and small businesses in the area. “Jolene is one of the most giving people that I know,” Kochersperger said. Kirk Hemmerick accepted the Hall of Honor award on behalf of his mother, the late Virginia “Ginny” Ann Hemmerick. She graduated

THOM in 1953 and was a scholar, author and artist in spite of her muscular dystrophy. Ginny was appointed to the White House Council for the Handicapped in Wasington, D.C., in 1977, one of four members from the state of Ohio. She is one of the oldest survivors of muscular dystrophy, passing away in 1990 at the age of 56. “She inspired everyone whose life she touched with her sense of humor, her intellect and her compassion,” Kochersperger said. “She is a hero to all of us who knew her and an inspiration to all Milton-Union alumni.” Dr. William Ginn, class of ’74, introduced the Milton-Union Athletic Hall of Fame inductees. From the class of ’66, Jim Hansen was recognized as standout athlete in three sports. Kortney Krieger, from the class of ’82, also was recognized. Joe Creech was the final honoree. From the class of ’96, Creech lettered in three sports during his high school career, and was named the “Outstanding Senior Male Athlete” in 1996. David Wion, class of ’76, announced each individual receiving an alumni scholarship. Following the business meeting, closing remarks were made by Fogle. Ginny Rammel gave a guided tour of the new building for those wishing to do so.

Question: Should this year’s Troy Strawberry Festival have been in downtown Troy or on the levee?

Watch for final poll results in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News. Watch for a new poll question

in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News.


“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” — First Amendment, U.S. Constitution

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Brunswick (Ga.) News on American voters: Another member of the U.S. House of Representatives has introduced yet another bill in a futile attempt to limit how long members of Congress can stay in office. The measure, authored by Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz., would limit House members to three terms, or six years, and senators to two terms, or 12 years. Since the change would require a constitutional amendment, twothirds of Congress would have to approve it followed by ratification of three-fourths of the 50 states. That’s a long road for any legislation to have to travel, which is as it should be when talking about altering the U.S. Constitution. There’s a better way to achieve this objective. What’s needed are men and women vying for office who are more concerned about their nation, about the future of all Americans, and less about their own political careers. In other words, the nation needs statesmen. Capping how much money can be spent on elections and re-elections also could prove beneficial to the American public. Spending millions of dollars on political contests is As I absolutely ridiculous, even for members of Congress and even in the USA.

Republicans are doing their best to tie the scandal to President Barack Obama, suggesting that a president they frequently deride as incompetent has suddenly been revealed as an ubercompetent Nixonian schemer who is pulling all the strings. Conservatives are making it an opportunity to bash a favorite target, the Internal Revenue Service. Members of Congress at a hearing on the matter late last week did what they do best — striking a disingenuous posture of outrage. They are shocked — shocked, mind you! — that the IRS would stoop to such a tactic and in response must play to the TV cameras. Such is the state of our politics, and in this case things are likely to get worse before they get better. ProPublica goes on to set up how government streamlining set in motion 15 years ago is a major contributor in how one ideology was singled out for close inspection. Sloppiness and corner-cutting might be the best explanation at this stage. Thus far, no investigation has yielded evidence of partisanship or a political order from higher up in the government. Republicans in Congress vow to look closer to see if political motivations are at the heart of the policy at the Cincinnati office. Perhaps Congress and the president should examine the conditions that led to the most recent incident and seek out solutions to fix it.

Another bean burger goes ahead and bites the dust A lot of people think because I work from home I juggle babysitting duties while punching the time clock. The truth is I would be an absolute disaster if I did this. Not only would I be only half-available for my children, I wouldn’t be able to accomplish a single task on my utterly lengthy to-do list. So for three mornings a week, my daughter goes to preschool. She gets to spend three-and-a-half hours painting carton caterpillars, stringing button necklaces, learning how to write her name and socializing with people other than her seemingly frazzled mother and five-month-old brother. Sending Pearyn to preschool has been an absolute blessing over the last year. I no longer worry how much she’s learning, if she’s getting the much-needed playtime with other kids her age or whether she’s happy. Every day when I pick her up she’s grinning ear-to-ear, beaming about what new song they learned, who threw a tantrum and that she can identify the letters “P” and “Y.” In terms of accepting our veganism, we’ve been met with nothing but kindness. Anytime there’s any birthday celebration they make me aware so I can bring Pearyn an identical treat. If they have a question about whether an activity, product or food is safe for her, they don’t hesitate to call. And if

Amanda Stewart Troy Daily News Columnist they’re trying to figure out where the one protein in her lunch is, they don’t assume there isn’t one, they ask what it is. Unfortunately, the nutritional guidelines are out of their hands. It doesn’t matter if my daughter is growing like a weed, testing off the charts in verbal and comprehension or completely sociable and popular with her peers, because we don’t drink milk from a cow or send her to school with chicken nuggets we’ve had to jump through special hoops to ensure our daughter is allowed to eat what is provided by us, and that the center doesn’t get in trouble. You might be wondering what I mean by trouble. You see, licensed childcare centers who receive any federal funding or report to the government are required to apply and follow the nutritional guidelines set by the USDA. This would seem like a good idea, except that we’re allowing the people who pro-

— Kasey Binne Troy

vide us food tell us what we should eat, with little involvement from associations well-versed in pediatrics or nutrition, like, say, the American Dietetic Association or the American Academy of Pediatrics. It’s baffling if you think about it, really. If all we could eat for the rest of our life was McDonalds, Wendy’s or Taco Bell and we then designated McDonalds to tell us what was healthy, what do you think they would encourage us to eat? Their product or all the others? So while our daughter is in a childcare setting, we have to get permission from her doctor to give her nondairy milks and plantbased proteins. Her lunches really aren’t all that out of the ordinary. Sometimes they consist of heart or flower-shaped peanut butter sandwiches, pretzels and some peas; other times I pack her chick pea patties, apples and broccoli. The important thing here is that they’re healthy, they’re both nutrient-dense and cruelty-free. On the other hand, there is a little boy in her class (one she’s taken a particular shine to). His lunches contain things like hot dogs, French fries and cheese puffs. Now don’t get me wrong here, I’m not judging what he eats, I firmly believe every parent is doing what they believe is the best

for their child. What I am questioning, is why the USDA seems to have a bone to pick with the diet choices for my family. You see, it doesn’t matter that our bean burger has almost double the protein in it as a typical pork hot dog, because it’s not listed on their “suggested” foods, our doctor has to promote the healthy nonanimal-based proteins available to our daughter. Essentially, he has to take responsibility for our daughter’s nutritional well-being because our foods aren’t provided verbatim under the USDA’s list provided to childcare centers. It’s a battle I knew we’d come to blows with, one we’ve come wellprepared for. But the problem isn’t with the childcare centers or public schools, where most people want to place the blame, it’s with the organization dictating what counts and doesn’t count as healthy. Ultimately, it’s the very beast feeding the machine that is telling us we’re not good enough. I’m not saying you have to be vegan to be healthy. But I am wondering why we’re letting an association that says a hot dog, with its almost 15 grams of fat, is an acceptable form of protein, tell us what is and isn’t OK to feed our kids.

Gunter walks across the stage to receive his diploma today, the cap and gown may hide his professional style — but not the inner confidence that radiates from within. Since his sophomore year, the graduating senior has dressed in professional attire each and every day, complete with jacket, tie, cuff links — a far cry from his peers in their T-shirts, jeans and gym shorts. “People treat you different when you dress nice,” Gunter said. “When I dress nice, it makes me feel good and gives me more confidence.” Gunter said he began dressing professionally his sophomore year after practicing for a Family, Career and Community Leaders Of America state officer’s seat, and said he felt more comfortable in a suit and tie and has dressed that way ever since. “After the interviews for the FCCLA state officer’s position, I noticed I felt different,” Gunter said. “I was just more confident, I guess — people respect you more.” Now a master at the Windsor knot, Gunter said dressing up each day takes his mind off his clothes to focus on academics. “It’s a lot more simple for me to dress like this,” he said. “If I wore shorts and a T-shirt, I’d think about it too much or if if looked right — this just feels like me.” Gunter said he’ll continue to don a suit and tie when he enrolls as a student at Sinclair Community College next fall, with his ultimate career goal of enrolling as a law student at the University of Dayton. “I’ve always wanted to be a defense attorney,” he said. As for upping the ante for the high school prom, the sophisticated senior said dressing for the dance was simple. “Oh, that was easy, all I had to do was add a vest,” he said with a laugh. While Gunter said he

prefers French cuffs, tietack and snake skin Oxfords at school, he does occasionally “dress down” after school, but not often. “This is just me — I feel good when I look good,” he said. Gunter said while his classmates and school teachers have grown accustomed to his professional attire, outsiders often ask how his career and family are doing. “Outside of school, people treat you like an adult,” he said. “Like when I get my haircut, they’ll ask how my family is doing and how work is going, even though I’m in high school.” “He’s always dressed to the nines,” said Troy High School Principal Bill Overla as he walked down the hallway with Gunter. Gunter said he’s enjoyed how incoming freshmen students think he’s a staff member. One of his fellow senior classmates even quipped, “Freshmen fear him” while they gathered at the senior bench. “That comes with some benefits,” he said with a smile. Gunter said his mother at first thought the professional look was a “phase,” but eventually started to add to his 70-plus tie collection. “Yes, it’s true I have about 70 to 80 ties,” Gunter said. “Most people get me a tie for Christmas so I have quite a few.” Gunter said one of his prized tie-clips is a gold bar engraved with an “H” from his grandfather. “That one is my favorite,” he said. “I order most of my cuff links and stuff online — my tie-tack today is from the Donald Trump collection.” Gunter said one of his role models in fashion doesn’t come from the pages of GQ magazine, but is none other than high school math teacher Wayne Nirode, from whom he borrowed the French cuff look. “His outfits are more extravagant, but I loved the French cuffs and thought that it look pretty cool so I copied it,” he said.

The pope and the devil: Is Francis an exorcist? VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis’ fascination with the devil took on remarkable new twists Tuesday, with a well-known exorcist insisting Francis helped “liberate” a Mexican man possessed by four different demons despite the Vatican’s insistence that no such papal exorcism took place. The case concerns a 43year-old husband and father who traveled to Rome from Mexico to attend Francis’ Mass on Sunday in St. Peter’s Square. At the end of the Mass, Francis blessed several wheelchair-bound faithful as he always does, including a man possessed by the devil, according to the priest who brought him, the Rev. Juan Rivas. Francis laid his hands on the man’s head and recited a prayer. The man heaved deeply a half-dozen times, shook, then slumped in his wheelchair. The images, broadcast worldwide, prompted the television station of the Italian bishops’ conference to declare that according to several exorcists, there was “no doubt” that Francis either performed an exorcism or a simpler prayer to free the man from the devil. The Vatican was more cautious. In a statement Tuesday, it said Francis “didn’t intend to perform any exorcism. But as he

The young man heaved deeply a half-dozen times, convulsed and shook, and then slumped in his wheelchair as Francis prayed over him. often does for the sick or suffering, he simply intended to pray for someone who was suffering who was presented to him.” The Rev. Gabriele Amorth, a leading exorcist for the diocese of Rome, said he performed a lengthy exorcism of his own on the man Tuesday morning and ascertained he was possessed by four separate demons. The case was related to the legalization of abortion in Mexico City, he said. Amorth told RAI state radio that even a short prayer, without the full rite of exorcism being per-

formed, is in itself a type of exorcism. “That was a true exorcism,” he said of Francis’ prayer. “Exorcisms aren’t just done according to the rules of the ritual.” Rivas took the Vatican line, saying it was no exorcism but that Francis merely said a prayer to free the man from the devil. “Since no one heard what he said, including me who was right there, you can say he did a prayer for liberation but nothing more,” Rivas wrote on his Facebook page, which was confirmed by his religious order, the Legionaries of

Christ. Fueling the speculation that Francis did indeed perform an exorcism is his frequent reference to Satan in his homilies as well as an apparent surge in demand for exorcisms among the faithful despite the irreverent treatment the rite often receives from Hollywood. Who can forget the green vomit and the spinning head of the possessed girl in the 1973 cult classic “The Exorcist”? In his very first homily as pope on March 14, Francis warned cardinals gathered in the Sistine Chapel the day after he was elected that “he who doesn’t pray to the Lord prays to the devil.” He has since mentioned the devil on a handful of occasions, most recently in a May 4 homily when in his morning Mass in the Vatican hotel chapel he spoke of the need for dialogue except with Satan. “With the prince of this world you can’t have dialogue: Let this be clear!” he warned. Experts said Francis’ frequent invocation of the devil is a reflection both of his Jesuit spirituality and his Latin American roots, as well as a reflection of a Catholic Church weakened by secularization. “The devil’s influence and presence in the world

Maspero, a Rome-based systematic theologian who has witnessed or participated in more than a dozen exorcisms, says he’s fairly certain that Francis’ prayer on Sunday was either a full-fledged exorcism or a more simple prayer to “liberate” the young man from demonic possession. He noted that the placement of the pope’s hands on the man’s head was the “typical position” for an exorcist to use. “When you witness something like that for me it was shocking I could feel the power of prayer,” he said in a phone interview, speaking of his own previous experiences. The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, sought to temper speculation that what occurred was a full-fledged exorcism. While he didn’t deny it outright he said Francis hadn’t “intended” to perform one he stressed that the intention of the person praying is quite important. Late Tuesday, the director of TV2000, the television of the Italian bishops’ conference, went on the air to apologize for the earlier report. “I don’t want to attribute to him a gesture that he didn’t intend to perform,” said the director, Dino Boffo.

seems to fluctuate in quantity inversely proportionate to the presence of Christian faith,” said the Rev. Robert Gahl, a moral theologian at Rome’s Pontifical Holy Cross University. “So, one would expect an upswing in his malicious activity in the wake of deChristianization and secularization” in the world and a surge in things like drug use, pornography and superstition. In recent years, Rome’s pontifical universities have hosted several courses for would-be exorcists on the rite, updated in 1998 and contained in a little red leather-bound booklet. The rite is relatively brief, consisting of blessings with holy water, prayers and an interrogation of the devil in which the exorcist demands to know the devil’s name, how many are present and when they will leave the victim. Only a priest authorized by a bishop can perform an exorcism, and canon law specifies that the exorcist must be “endowed with piety, knowledge, prudence and integrity of life.” While belief in the devil is consistent with church teaching, the Holy See does urge prudence, particularly to ensure that the victim isn’t merely psychologically ill.

Invite sisters to do some research on their own Dear Annie: I am one of five middle-aged sisters. My father died four years ago, and shortly after, my mother moved to an apartment near me. As her health has declined, I've gradually become a partial caregiver. I am with her every day, sometimes for six hours or more. Mom insists on paying me. She can easily afford it. I was conservative with my hours, and the rate was comparable to inhome services. I am an excellent caregiver and pleased to help. Mom knows her care is better than she'd get anywhere else. She is content and wants to stay where she is. Her doctors concur. After a year of "salary," my sisters hit the ceiling. I am Mom's power of attorney, cotrustee and executor, and I've been 100 percent honest. I love my sisters, but they have no faith in me. They have mentioned moving Mom away from me. Should I just go ahead and take over? Legally? Financially? Isn't there a way we can all simply get along? — Outcast Sister Dear Outcast: Taking over seems guaranteed to provoke your sisters. Instead, invite them to participate in Mom's care. Explain in detail what Mom needs. Perhaps they would like to take turns caring for her to see for themselves the amount of time and effort required. Ask whether they would prefer hiring an outside caregiver, and let them research the cost. Show them in writing the number of hours you spend with Mom. They need to appreciate what you do without feeling guilty or resentful or, worse, thinking that you are not deserving of any compensation. Dear Annie: The other day I mentioned to my oldest daughter that her youngest sibling seemed overly close with her youngest child. My daughter replied, "Oh, that's just the youngest child syndrome. Everyone spends more time on the youngest and gives them everything. You do, too, Mom." This statement hurt a little. When I went home, I thought about it and would like to clarify: Yes, when my older children grew up, I had more time to spend with the youngest, but that doesn't mean I loved him more. Yes, over the years, our expenses have gone down, so we could buy more things, but that doesn't mean I loved him more. Yes, with fewer children around to care for, I could take him places that I never took the others, but that doesn't mean I loved him more. My older kids were with me when we couldn't afford restaurants, so we had more family dinners at home. There was no money for movies, so we built a snowman. Instead of fancy trips, we read and talked about those exotic places. But, daughter, I never loved you less. — Your Mother Dear Mother: For every older child who believes the youngest is indulged, there is a younger child who believes the oldest is favored. Thank you for making it clear that in most families each child is loved deeply and completely, even when the surrounding circumstances change. Dear Annie: I read the letter from "A Little Wiser," the man whose wife of 41 years had breast cancer. The experience of almost losing her transformed their relationship. They could no longer remember the things that bothered them. They no longer spoke hurtful words. They no longer saw the petty annoyances. That letter made me cry. My husband wondered what happened. I gave him the paper, and he started crying, too. You see, 18 months ago, I had a stroke. I am still recovering. Tell "Wiser" that we had the very same "deficiencies" in our memories and discovered each other all over again. Thank you for printing it. — Love It Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Is it polite for visitors to bring their dog along? Dear Heloise: How do I go about telling people that I do not want them to bring their dog into my house without hurting their feelings? The dog is very wellbehaved, but I am not a dog lover. He eats people food, and they feed him the food I cook, from the table, while we are eating a meal. Don’t you think it is rude for them to expect others to “enjoy” their dog as much as they do? — A Traveling Reader, via email This is a tough one! I guess the best way is to just be honest and explain how you feel. Not everyone is a dog lover, and many don’t enjoy having a dog in their home. They (or you) may be afraid because of an incident when young, or they never had a dog as a pet. Simply

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, May 26, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might spend a lot of time daydreaming today or being lost in a fantasy world. That's OK. We all need to take a mental-health day now and then. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Be careful about financial matters today, because you might be deceived. This means someone could be deceiving you, or you could be deceiving yourself. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might feel physically tired today. It's as if your energy is masked, or whatever you try to do is just too much. No worries. This is brief. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) It's easy to second-guess yourself today or lose confidence about something. However, if you think something fishy is going on, you're probably right! LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A friend might confuse you today, especially in a group. If you feel this is happening, do nothing. You don't have to jump when someone expects it. Be true to yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Conversations with authority figures (including parents) might be disappointing. Perhaps they expected more of you, or you expected more of them? It happens. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Don't fall for fast talk about religion or politics today, because that's just what you might encounter. If you think someone is feeding you a line, he or she is! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Double-check banking matters today or anything related to taxes, inheritances and shared property. Something is confusing. In fact, someone might not be telling the truth. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Don't be deceptive with others today in order to avoid something unpleasant. Quite likely, you won't pull it off successfully. Just keep to yourself. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Because your energy level is low today, don't push yourself at work. In fact, if you can take the day off, by all means do so. Everyone has limits, even you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Romance might be disappointing today. You might want to ask yourself if you were clear with this other person. Remember: Unexpressed expectations almost always lead to disappointment. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Don't try to be unreasonably perfect when dealing with family members today. Cut yourself some slack. It's one thing to have ideals, but we all put our pants on one leg at a time, right? YOU BORN TODAY You have morals and are seen as honorable. Nevertheless, you are opinionated and impulsive! You need to be free to do your own thing, even if you have to defy family. No matter how outgoing you appear, you are private and often choose to withdraw from the busyness around you. Your year ahead is the beginning of a fresh, new cycle. Open any door! Birthdate of: Stevie Nicks, singer; Peggy Lee, singer; Lenny Kravitz, musician. (c) 2013 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

of steady, but slow, recovery. AAA, one of the nation’s largest leisure travel agencies, isn’t expecting a resounding start to vacation season this Memorial Day. Citing the “up and down economy,” AAA expects 31.2 million Americans to hit the road this weekend, virtually the same number as last year. Throw in planes, trains and buses, and the number of travelers will drop about 1 percent, AAA says. As vacationers set out this summer, here’s what they can expect: • Gas prices about the same as last year. The national average price of gasoline was $3.65 a gallon Friday, 1 cent higher than during last year’s Memorial Day weekend. Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at, expects prices to drift lower after the holiday and fall close to last summer’s low of $3.33 per gallon before hurricane season starts to drag them up again. • More expensive hotel rooms. The average hotel will cost $112.21, before taxes and any other add-on such as resort fees. That’s up 4.4 percent from last year’s $107.52, according to hotel research firm STR. Hotels are also expected to be slightly fuller, with occupancy rates climbing from 69.3 percent last summer to 70 percent this year. • Packed planes, steady airfare. Airlines for America, the industry’s lobby group, expects 208.7 million people to fly, up 1 percent from last year. About 87 percent of airplane seats will be filled with paying passengers. Domestic fliers will pay $421 on average for a round trip ticket, down $6 from last summer. International fliers will pay $1,087, up $8, according to the Airlines Reporting Corp. • Amtrak expects to meet or exceed the 8.3 million passengers it carried last summer. But the tax-

railroad payer-backed wouldn’t disclose how fares compare with last summer’s average one-way ticket of $66.39. Mike Klopp, a commercial insurance salesman in Irvine, Calif., is starting to feel better about the economy. He and his wife plan to take their three kids on a vacation up the coast to Monterey in August a trip they skipped last year. But Klopp says local trips are the limit because they’re cheaper. Like many others, he’s not yet willing to splurge on a dream vacation. “The kids would love to go to Hawaii, but there’s no way I’m going to do that. We’ve been hunkering down, money is tight right now,” he says. “I’m not sold that things are better,” he says. Other Americans likely agree. Although the unemployment rate has dropped to 7.5 percent, compared with a post-recession high of 10 percent, the Federal Reserve doesn’t see it falling below 7.3 percent this year. And economic growth still isn’t as strong as it has been after previous recessions. The economy grew at an annual pace of 2.5 percent from January to March. Economists expect the rate to slow to 2 percent from April through June, partly because of the federal budget cuts that started taking effect March 1. Those with higher incomes never stopped traveling, but thanks to new highs in the stock market they now feel secure enough to take longer vacations. Patrick Veling, the owner of a California real estate data analysis and consulting business, says he’s taking his “most expensive vacation ever” this year. Instead of the normal one-week vacation, he and his wife Susan are taking their two adult kids on a three-week vacation through northern Europe that will include a 12-day cruise.

In this May 23 file photo, Sherry Wells stands near the storm shelter where she took cover when a tornado destroyed her home onMay 20, in Moore, Okla. Wells said she and her husband won a lottery draw to receive a government-subsidized rebate to install the storm shelter. A contractor finished work on the concrete bunker beneath the slab of their garage about three weeks before the tornado hit.

Can Tornado Alley become safer? Yes, within limits BY SHARON COHEN Associated Press In the wind-swept prairie called Tornado Alley, the scene is eerily familiar: Homes smashed to splinters. Trees and telephone poles snapped like twigs. Piles of bricks, overturned cars and dazed survivors sifting through rubble in search of a precious photo or heirloom. A town in ruins. On Monday, it was Moore, Okla. Two years ago, it was Joplin, Mo. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pattern to the aftermath of these deadly disasters: Clean-up. A steely determination. Vows to rebuild. And urgent questions about what can be done to shield tornado-prone communities from the worst ravages of the next monster storm that comes calling. The ferocious tornado in Moore that killed 24 people and carved a nearly 17-mile path of destruction is bound to revive talk of beefed-up building codes, spur new construction of shelters and send architects and engineers back to the drawing board for ways to make Tornado Alley safer. Some experts are urging more of the tools used to protect hurricane zones; others say there are limits, financial and practical, to what a community can do to protect itself from the kind of horrific supertwisters that leveled Moore and Joplin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can design for 250 mph winds but you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t design for it economically,â&#x20AC;? says Steve Cope, Joplinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building and neighborhood improvement supervisor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to be something that can withstand the impact of a car going 250 miles an hour into a wall and roof because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what happened here. â&#x20AC;Ś To build a truly tornado-proof home, people wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to afford to live in it.â&#x20AC;? After 161 people died in Joplin in an EF5 tornado in May 2011, the city strengthened its building codes. It now requires, for example, more mechanical fasteners at the roof and foundation to better keep intact the shell of the house, Cope says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did what we felt was economical and easily achievable and we know would make an impact,â&#x20AC;? he adds. But Joplin stopped short of mandating safe rooms, largely for financial reasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about an additional $3,000 to $4,000,â&#x20AC;? Cope says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many people thought that additional cost should be up to them to decide. We have folks who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want government to tell them they had to do it.â&#x20AC;? Residents of Tornado Alley have proven time and again their resilience when their communities are flattened and all seems lost. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sense that if dust storms, droughts and Depression have been unable to break their spirit,

Oklahoma gets far more than its share of disasters WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Many states get hit frequently with tornadoes and other natural catastrophes, but Oklahoma is Disaster Central. The twister that devastated Moore, Okla., was the 74th presidential disaster declared in the Sooner state in the past 60 years. Only much-larger and more-populous California and Texas have had more. The state is No. 1 in tornado disasters and No. 3 for flooding, according to a database of presidential disaster declarations handled by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. And those figures donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include drought, which is handled by a different agency. The explanation is partly atmospheric conditions that trigger twisters and flooding, partly where people live and how they build their homes, and partly politics and bureaucratic skill, according to disaster experts. Of the 25 U.S. counties that have been declared disasters the most times since 1953, nine are in Oklahoma, the highest total of any state. Oklahoma County has been on the disaster list 38 times, more than the entire state of New Jersey. Caddo County, just west of the Oklahoma City metro area, has been named a federal disaster area nine times since 2007, with a litany of woe that includes twisters, floods, ice storms, a blizzard and violent winds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things happen around here,â&#x20AC;? Tulsa, Okla.-based disaster consultant Ann Patton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course, sometimes it can make you stronger.â&#x20AC;? neither will twisters. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially true in Moore, which has been battered by three big tornados in the last 14 years. When twister season arrives in Oklahoma, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sense that â&#x20AC;&#x153;this is the time of year when things happen, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a cowering attitude, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so afraid,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Caleb Lack, an assistant psychology professor at the University of Central Oklahoma who has studied PTSD in tornado survivors. One conclusion of his research: PTSD is more likely to occur among those whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve experienced manmade disasters, such as a bombing or a school shooting, than among survivors of natural disasters. Folks in Oklahoma understand no place is safe, he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You adopt an attitude that matches the environment,â&#x20AC;? Lack explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here we have massive storms but the positive vastly outweighs the negative. People say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I could live in places where there are no tornadoes, but then there are hurricanes, there are earthquakes and there are blizzards.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; You have to choose your poison.â&#x20AC;? Joplin hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen any great exodus since its disaster. There also havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been dramatic differences in construction and the same kinds of houses are being built with relatively minor modifications, such as extra concrete in the foundations and roof fasteners, says Crystal Harrington, head of the Home Builders Association of Southwest Missouri. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That will make a difference for a normal disaster,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ours was an extraordinary disaster.â&#x20AC;? Harrington says there might have more calls for different construction

methods if the twister had been less severe and some particular kinds of building remained standing. But â&#x20AC;&#x153;when you saw all this destruction, all anybody could think was nobody could survive this,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A concrete house would but people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want that.â&#x20AC;? Instead, more people are opting for in-house safe rooms or shelters. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the route Lloyd Parker and his wife, Janie, took after they lost almost everything in the Joplin twister. Parker says his wife, who suffered a punctured lung and three broken ribs in the storm, insisted on the safe room. It has 8-inch-thick concrete walls with reinforced steel rods and a steel door that can withstand almost 300 mph winds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Short of an atom bomb,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;nothing will get into it. The whole house could fall down and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be fine.â&#x20AC;? They equipped the room with cable TV and recliners. Parker and his wife hunkered down there during a spare of recent storms and stayed informed by watching The Weather Channel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It cost $4,000 to $5,000 but it was worth it,â&#x20AC;? Parker says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would recommend everybody do it.â&#x20AC;? But theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still in the minority. Only about 20 percent of homes built after the tornado have above-ground, in-house safe rooms, says Cope, the Joplin official. Some folks, he says, are choosing backyard shelters, instead. Money remains a big obstacle for building storm shelters and basements, according to Curtis McCarty, an Oklahoma custom builder. Homes in the state are generally built on slabs.

Reds top Cubs, 7-4 CINCINNATI (AP) — Joey Votto extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a homer, and Ryan Hanigan and Brandon Phillips also homered on Friday night, powering the Cincinnati Reds to their fourth straight win, 7-4 over the Chicago Cubs. The Reds have won 12 of their past 15 games, surging to a season-high 12 games over .500. At 30-18, they’re three wins ahead of their pace last season, when they won 97 games and the NL Central. They’ve dominated the Cubs, winning 15 of their past 17. The Reds are 18-5 overall against the Cubs in the past two seasons. Chicago is last in the NL Central, having lost a season-high Troy’s Seth Overla competes in the shot put at the Division I dis-

PIQUA The quartet finished in 1:42.19, beating Wayne’s team by more than half a second to claim a district title. “That’s the first time all season we’ve been able to beat Wayne, I think,” sophomore Huffman said. “I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure that’s the first time we’ve beat them. Seeing Todda cross the finish line first, it was so exciting.” “We just improved our handoffs at practice,” Rector said. “Our hard work paid off today. At this point in the year, advancing to the next week is what matters. Winning was just the icing on the cake.” “It feels good. We feel like

■ CONTINUED FROM 13 High School. “I knew they struggled defensively pretty much all year,” Cahill said. “I knew if we hit the ball on the ground we’d be okay. We’ve had some games where we’ve hit 12 fly balls, so we’ve been trying harder and harder in practice to just really work on hitting the ball on the ground or hitting it on a line. (They) get penalized for anything they hit up. We’ve been doing pushups and things like that. But we’re really just trying to get them out of that. “We put the ball in play, and that’s what we needed to do.” Tipp pitcher Steven Calhoun went five innings for the win and struck out four. The only run scored against him came in the top of the third, when Ben Logan’s Brady Bechtel stole third and went home when catcher B.J. Donathan’s pickoff attempt sailed high. “I thought the first three innings Steven was a little bit up controlwise,” Cahill said. “Then the last three innings, I thought he threw well. He was down in the zone, which is good.” Tippecanoe took full advantage of an errorprone Ben Logan defense in the home first, jumping out to a 3-0 lead. Austin Hadden’s single plated Zack Blair, who reached on an error on the second atbat of the game. On the next at-bat, Donathan hammered a two-run

■ CONTINUED FROM 13 a calming presence on the mound in senior Kirsten Burden, a player who has pitched on the biggest stage of high school softball, the state championship game. “Kirsten’s leadership is what’s important,” said Kadel of Burden. “Yes, she is a great pitcher, but she brings out the best in our younger players with her leadership.” Freshman catcher Rose Studebaker is proof of that as evidenced by her effort to catch an attempted bunt in the sixth inning that she turned into a double play by gunning down a runner at first. “The girls play hard because that’s the expectation,” Kadel said. “If you want to play in our league, you better make plays like that. Our league prepares us for the tournament.” Coming into the game Newton was one of five Cross County Conference teams playing for a district championship, and they did their part by taking care of business against Country Day. The Indians opened the scoring with two runs in the top of the first on a tworun single by Laura Burden. Newton followed with another run in the top of the second on an RBI single by Megan Rutledge. After two scoreless innings in which the Indians left runners stranded in scoring position, Newton pushed the lead to 5-0 in the top of the sixth. Madison Mollette


Tippecanoe’s Cameron Johnson is tagged out on a steal attempt Friday. triple but was called out at home after trying to score on an overthrow to third. Ben Hughes and Langdon hit back-to-back singles with one out in the third. On the next at-bat, Hadden hit a grounder to short that was flipped to second for the force and overthrown to first, allowing Hughes to come in. With one out in the bottom of the fourth, Zach Robbins bunted for a hit and Cole Quillen followed by reaching on an error. Blair had an infield hit for an RBI two batters later, then Hughes’ grounder

was good for another hit. With the bases loaded, Langdon delivered his two-run single. “I don’t think we hit a ball out of the infield (in the bottom of the fourth),” Cahill said. “I mean Carter’s ball leaked through, but everything else stayed in the infield. We had a couple choppers up the third-base line, infield hit to short. But again, that’s what works. That’s better than a popup.” The Red Devils advance to play in the district title game against Alter today

at 1 p.m. at Mason High School. And with their ace Hughes on the mound today, Cahill is very confident. “Our whole thing is just playing our game,” Cahill said. “The nice thing is I’m sure they (Alter) had to throw their No. 1 pitcher tonight, and we’ve got our one going (today). That’s a good thing.” BL .........010 000 0 — 1 5 6 Tipp .301 402 x — 10 11 2 Collins and Pulfer. Calhoun, Quillen (6) and Donathan. WP — Calhoun. LP — Collins. 3B — Donathan (T).

reached on single and then stole second and third base on consecutive pitches. She then raced home on an arrant throw to third that went into left field. Kasey Thompson followed with a triple into the gap and Kirsten Burden squeezed her in with a sacrifice bunt. One final Newton run went on the board in the top of the seventh as Burden drove in her sister, Laura Burden, on an RBI single to make the final score 6-0. “A win is a win,” Kadel said. “Defensively, we played pretty well. We got to doing what got us here, pitching and defense. Kirsten threw well and we made plays in the field when we had to.” Newton advances to play the winner of Ansonia and Triad in the regional semifinal Wednesday in Tipp City. • Baseball Division IV District Arcanum 8, Lehman 4 PLEASANT HILL — The Lehman Cavaliers spotted Arcanum six runs in the top of the first, and even though they came back in the bottom of the first, and got a gem of a relief effort from Cole Proffitt, it was too much to overcome in an 8-4 loss in Division IV District final action at Newton High School Friday. The loss ends Lehman’s season at 20-8. Arcanum moves on to face the Russia Raiders Thursday at 2 p.m. at Springfield in the regional semifinals.

Pens finish off Sens

Kuchar leads Colonial when play is suspended in second round

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Eight playoff wins down, eight to go for Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins. James Neal had a hat trick and the Penguins finished off the lifeless Ottawa Senators 6-2 on Friday night in Game 5 of the Eastern conference semifinals to take the best-ofseven series 4-1. Kris Letang, Evgeni and Brenden Malkin Morrow also scored, and Tomas Vokoun made 29 as top-seeded saves Pittsburgh strolled to the next round. The Penguins will face Boston or the New York Rangers in the conference finals. Milan Michalek and Kyle Turris scored for Ottawa. Craig Anderson stopped 27 shots, but the Senators simply couldn’t keep up as the Penguins ended the Ottawa’s season for the third time in the last five years. The Penguins expected desperation from a team trying to extend its season for at least another 48 hours. Instead, the Senators offered only resignation. Outskated, outshot and outworked from the opening faceoff, Ottawa put up little resistance as Pittsburgh moved on to the conference finals for the first time since 2009, when the franchise won its third Stanley Cup. The series win was the

Pittsburgh had gone 0-6 at home in potential series enders, something Bylsma’s players insisted was an anomaly. Pittsburgh made sure a trip to Canada for Game 6 wouldn’t be necessary, turning Ottawa forward Daniel Alfredsson into a prophet of sorts. The NHL’s longesttenured captain said the Senators “probably” couldn’t rally to win the series after a 7-3 home loss in Game 4 on Wednesday

Red Sox pound Indians, 8-1 Pitcher Lackey allows just 2 hits BOSTON (AP) — John Lackey allowed two hits in seven innings, Mike Carp hit a three-run homer and the Boston Red Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 8-1 on a rainy Friday night. It was the second straight strong performance by Lackey, who missed all last season following Tommy John elbow surgery. Last Sunday he gave up one hit and one unearned run in six innings of a 5-1 win at Minnesota. He left that game after a three-hour rain delay. After a 44-minute delay before Friday’s game, Lackey (3-4) struck out eight, walked three and gave up an unearned run while pitching through a steady rain. He allowed only two of the 25 batters he faced to hit the ball out of the infield. Lackey finished his night by striking out Jason Giambi and Mark Reynolds to end the seventh. As he walked toward the dugout, fans chanted, “Lackey! Lackey!”

The Indians fell out of first place in the AL Central and a half-game behind the Detroit Tigers, who beat the Minnesota Twins 6-0. The Red Sox remained one game behind the AL East-leading New York Yankees, who beat the Tampa Bay Rays 9-4. Carp broke an 0-for-21 slump in the second inning with his third homer of the year. That also ended a 20-inning scoreless streak for Justin Masterson (7-3). The homer followed a walk to David Ortiz and a single by Mike Napoli. Former Red Sox manager Terry Francona received an ovation when he walked back to the dugout after making two pitching changes in the seventh, when Boston scored four runs. Francona returned to Fenway Park as an opposing manager on Thursday night for the first time since he was let go by the Red Sox after the 2011 season. The Indians won that game 12-3.

Reds ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 five straight. The Cubs (1829) slid a season-low 11 games under .500. Votto and Hanigan homered in the fourth inning off Scott Feldman (4-4), who had only one bad inning. Feldman gave up five runs in the fourth, the same number he’d allowed in his past five starts combined. Phillips hit a two-run shot in the eighth off Hector Rondon. Bronson Arroyo (5-4) gave up three runs and six hits in six innings, including Feldman’s first career homer. Jonathan Broxton allowed Luis Valbuena’s RBI single in the eighth. Aroldis Chapman pitched the ninth for his 11th save in 13 chances. After blowing a pair of save opportunities, the left-hander has converted his past three. He gave up a single and a walk and fanned three. The Reds had their third sellout crowd of the season, and the last two games of the series will draw capacity crowds as

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Matt Kuchar was hoping he would be able to finish his second round Friday night at Colonial. He ended up with the lead and a very early wakeup call. Kuchar had only three holes to complete in what so far was a bogey-free round, with his ball already on the 16th green. He was at 10 under and described the conditions as “just perfect right now.” But Kuchar was among 54 players still on the course when play was suspended at Hogan’s Alley because of an impending storm system. The 18 groups that didn’t finish are scheduled to resume the second round at 7:15 a.m. CT Saturday, just more than 12 hours after coming off the course. “That’s a bit of a bummer,” said Kuchar, who opened with a 5-under 65. “It’s no fun to wake up at 4:30 to get out here and play three holes.” At least Kuchar has the lead, by one stroke over Graham DeLaet, the Canadian who shot a

well. Arroyo had trouble keeping his pitches down at the outset. Darwin Barney had a sacrifice fly in the second inning, and Feldman followed with his first career homer, a tworun shot for a 3-0 lead. Cubs pitchers have driven in 15 runs this season, most in the majors. The three-run inning ended Arroyo’s streak of 15 1-3 scoreless innings, his best of the season. The right-hander has won his past three starts. Feldman had his streak of five impressive starts fall apart in the fourth. Votto led off with his eighth homer, extending his hitting streak to 12 games, the longest by a Reds player this season. He leads the NL with a .361 batting average. And that was just the start. Phillips followed with a single, stretching his hitting streak to a season-best 11 games, and eventually scored on Xavier Paul’s single. Hanigan’s three-run homer his second made it 5-3.

night. Alfredsson clarified his remarks Thursday, insisting his team still had a chance. It didn’t take long for slim to turn into none. Sluggish from the opening faceoff, the Senators slogged through the game’s first 10 minutes, long enough for Morrow to pay immediate dividends in his return to the lineup. The veteran forward was scratched from Game 4 in favor of rookie Beau Bennett but appeared reenergized after the night off. He scored his second goal of the playoffs 6:25 into the

first period while scoring the kind of goal the Penguins expected out of him when they acquired the 34-year-old from Dallas just before the trade deadline. Pittsburgh’s Matt Cooke beat a Senator to a loose puck along the halfboards then zipped a cross-ice pass to defenseman Mark Eaton. Morrow skated to the net and lifted his stick up to draw Eaton’s attention. Eaton patiently waited for Morrow to get in front of the crease before throwing a puck toward the net that deflected off Morrow’s skate and into the net.

67 in a morning round completed before a 2hour, 10-minute delay just after noon because of lightning. DeLaet was at 9-under 131. Kuchar, No. 13 in the world and the highestranked player in the field, took the lead with a 6-foot-birdie putt at 457-yard 14th hole, and recovered from a drive into a fairway bunker on the 15th for a par while clouds darkened and thunder could be heard in the distance. Soon after Kuchar, the WGC-Accenture Match Play winner in February, teed off at the par-3 16th, and his ball landed about 40 feet from the cup, the horn sounded ending play. It was raining heavily about 30 minutes later. First-round leader Ryan Palmer, the Colonial member who had an opening 62, was still at 8 under after an up-and-down 12 holes Friday that he managed to play at even par. Steve Flesch (64), 19year-old Jordan Spieth (67) from Dallas and Josh Teater (67) finished at 8 under.

Division I

Catelyn Troy’s Schmiedebusch competes in the 300 hurdles Friday night. ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 we’re on top of the world right now,” Norris said. “We’re looking to make our way back to state.” The 4x400 team of Rector, Schmiedebusch, Norris and Huffman finished off the night with a title, also, winning in 4:01.98. The 4x100 team of Byrd, Huffman, Norris and Sharice Hibbler finished third (49.39 seconds) to advance to the regional, as well. Huffman also won the 400 in 57.56 seconds, edging out Northmont’s Elisha Cooper (57.6 seconds). Rector — who ran the 400 at state last year — was fourth (59.49 seconds) to advance. Piqua’s track was also the first place Huffman defeated Rector in the 400 at the Miami County Invitational, and since then the two have had a friendly rivalry. “You’re always going to have those head-to-head races with teammates,” Rector said. “It’s good to have teammates pushing you to get better.” “It’s all about pushing each other,” Huffman said. “It’s good for both of us. We’re pretty equal. It feels good crossing first, but it feels even better to cross with her next to me. “We’re getting better, and that’s that it’s all about at this time of the year.” Schmiedebusch also won a district title in the 100 hurdles, finishing a mere


Tippecanoe’s Andy Droesch competes in the high jump at the Division I district Tippecanoe freshman Emily Wolfe placed fourth in meet Friday in Piqua. the 1,600 Friday. 0.02 seconds off of the Troy High School record in a time of 15.21 seconds. “Honestly, it didn’t feel any different. I wasn’t expecting that time at all,” Schmiedebusch said. “Twohundredths of a second off. If I’d just had a better start or … anything really … I would’ve gotten it. But hopefully next week I’ll be able to get it.” She felt the effects of that run in the 300 hurdles, though, finishing second (46.96 seconds) behind Wayne’s Dre’Ameerha Walker (45.77 seconds). “It’s just an endurance thing really. That one (the 100) got me early, and then I wasn’t able to finish out (the 300),” she said. Norris was also second in the long jump (17-11.25), Byrd was fourth in the 200 (26.22 seconds), and Caitlyn McMinn was fourth in the 3,200 (12:19.46) to advance. Troy’s girls were second overall with 95 points, with Wayne winning (143). • Ironmen Roshaun Wesson doesn’t need to be a character. His racing says enough about him. Wesson, a junior, won a

tight 400 race, running a time of 50.61 seconds and out-leaning Wayne’s Jordan Whitfield (50.67 seconds) and Northmont’s Drew Hickman (50.75 seconds) at the finish line to win. “I’m excited,” he said in a deadpan manner. “I am. It doesn’t look it now, but I am.” Wesson was hampered much of last season with shin splints, and in the early part of this season he was still concerned. But of late he’s really blossomed, and the district title is just the latest win. “I just kept working hard in the offseason, and I’ve been trying to get better all year,” Wesson said. “I’ve just been fighting through it.” “I think, even though he has the athletic ability to do it, everything he’s accomplished this year has come from upstairs,” Troy boys coach Deon Metz said of Wesson. “He decided to push through the pain. He’s been aggressive, and he’s going out and getting it. It was a mental block for him, but once you know you can run well, you just do it.” Troy Schultz — who has been fighting through a

severe heart issue — held on in the 800 to finish fourth (1:58.22) and advance to the regional. “Last year I made it to the regional in the mile. But two laps is about all I can do with this elevated heart rate,” Schultz said. “But (1:58) in this is still good for a sophomore.” Schultz missed most of the early part of cross country season because of the heart issue, but he’s worked his way back and has found ways to compete. “It’s been tough,” he said. “But my dad and my mom have supported me a lot, we have excellent people helping me, and it’s just all about fighting through it. “A lot of it you just have to gut it out. You’ve got to be strong, have a good mindset and keep pushing through.” Alex Dalton — who qualified in the discus on Wednesday — was the runner-up in the shot put with a throw of 49-1. The 4x100 team of Devante Bush, Miles Hibbler, Nick Zimmer and Blake Williams finished third (43.19 seconds). Branden Nosker (9:43.91) and Jon Osman (9:48.01) were third and fourth in the 3,200.

Troy’s boys were third overall (78). Wayne completed the sweep with 117 to win the meet. •Acting Like They’ve Been There When Grant Koch won the 800 at district last season, it was a shock to many — including himself — and he justifiably couldn’t hide his elation. There was no party at the finish line this season, no hugs from coaches and yelling and screaming with teammates. After all, he’s had a full year to get used to winning on big stages. Koch practically led from start to finish in the 800 Friday night, winning without being challenged in 1:56.07. “Yeah, it’s a lot different perspective this year,” a calm-but-still-excited Koch said. “As nice as it is, I’ve got a lot of big-race experience under my belt now, so I had a lot of confidence coming into this race. I knew everyone else was looking at me, waiting for me to make the move.” So Koch got the chance to run the race differently than he’s used to. “I’m more of a sit back and kick guy, but today I

wanted to go out a little faster at the start,” he said. “If I’m going to compete at the regional and state, I need to be able to do that. It’s good getting experience in both.” Fellow senior Sam Wharton — the state runner-up in the 3,200 last season — blew away the competition, finishing the 3,200 in 9:00.78 to win the district title. Another Tippecanoe senior, Rick Andrews, was the runner-up in 9:42.62. Also an easy winner was Allison Sinning. The junior transfer from Arkansas who placed at state during cross country season won the 3,200 by close a full minute, finishing in 11:16.95. The runner-up was 51.26 seconds behind. Andy Droesch was second in the high jump, clearing 6-4, while freshman Mitchell Poynter was fourth (4:32.21) in the 1,600 to advance. Overall, the boys were fourth (65). Allison Rawlins moved on in the 300 hurdles, finishing third (48.32 seconds). Freshman Emily Wolf qualified for the regional in the 1,600, finishing fourth (5:37.31). Overall, the Red Devil girls were sixth (48).

Rivalry highlights French Open PARIS (AP) — Perhaps not surprisingly, the first three questions posed to Roger Federer at his preFrench Open news conference Friday concerned rival and nemesis Rafael Nadal. The third was about the difficulties of making a successful return from injury, the way Nadal has, reaching the final at all eight tournaments he’s played in 2013 after going more than half a year between matches. Federer shrugged and replied simply: “I don’t know. I have never been out for seven months.” No he hasn’t. Federer is always around, particularly at Grand Slam time. When the French Open starts Sunday, he will be participating in his 54th consecutive major tournament, a run that began with the

Australian Open in January 2000. That’s the longest such streak among active players; no one else comes within two years of Federer. “For me, it’s just something I just kept on doing. Now here we are,” said Federer, who is seeded No. 2 in Paris and was drawn Friday to face qualifiers in each of the first two rounds. “It’s incredible. I never thought I was going to play that many, have that many opportunities to do well at the Slams. And clearly I’m happy about it, but they don’t buy me victories, you know,” added Federer, whose record 17 major titles include the 2009 French Open. “But it shows maybe great stamina and (an) injury-free career, in a way.” Nadal, who’s dealt with recurring knee problems,

will be back in Grand Slam action after nearly a year’s absence from the four most important tournaments in tennis. At least he’s in the field at Roland Garros, something Andy Murray and Juan Martin del Potro can’t say: Both of those past U.S. Open champions and current top-10 players withdrew because of health issues. Seven-time French Open champion Nadal dismissed the notion that he might be excited about getting back on the Slam stage for the first time since a second-round loss at Wimbledon last June. Each tournament is as important as any other, the 11-time major title winner insisted Friday, going so far as to say: “If you can ask me if I win one Grand Slam during the whole year or win six tournaments, like I already did, I will choose (winning) six tournaments.” He explained: “When you win (a) Grand Slam, you are happy one week or two weeks. When you are winning (other) tournaments, you are having the chance to be happy and you feel that you are doing the right things during the rest of the time.” By that standard,

Federer has not had an especially happy 2013. His record is only 18-6, and he enters the French Open without a title for the season for the first time since 2000, his second full year on tour. Federer’s played in only one final, a straight-set loss to Nadal in Rome last weekend. Despite that, Federer declared: “I’m at the level I want to have for this tournament.” Now 31, and a father of twin girls, Federer tweaked his schedule this year to give himself a bit of a break. He skipped the hard-court event at Key Biscayne, Fla., and went nearly two months from March 14 to May 7 between matches. “For me, it’s important to stay injury-free, to give myself time,” Federer said, “so when I come back, I’m fresh and motivated.” He’s not merely about longevity or consistency, of course, but also excellence. Federer doesn’t just show up at Grand Slam tournaments: He has reached at least the quarterfinals at the last 35 of them, and earlier put together runs of 23 consecutive semifinals, and 10 consecutive finals.

Penalties Upheld A NASCAR appeals panel has upheld the penalties for two Richard Childress Racing Nationwide crew members who were also criminally charged for fighting with Nelson Piquet Jr. at Richmond last month. Crew members Thomas Costello and Michael Searce of driver Brian Scott’s team were both suspended for four Nationwide Series races and fined $15,000 each. The suspensions begin next week at Dover. The two will be able to return in late June at Kentucky. RCR chief operating officer Torrey Galida said Friday he was unsure if his organization would appeal the ruling by the three-person panel. He said RCR appealed because it thought the NASCAR penalties were excessive.

Return to Indy 500 not likely for Patrick

Honoring Okl. Owner Michael Waltrip and others in the NASCAR garage hope to bring attention to the needs of those affected by the Oklahoma tornadoes at the Coca-Cola 600 this weekend. Michael Waltrip Racing’s three Sprint Cup cars will carry decals of Feed The Children, an Oklahoma City-based group that is providing food and resources to victims of the tornadoes. Michael Waltrip said he wanted to help out when he saw the devastation. MWR cars driven by Martin Truex Jr., Clint Bowyer and Mark Martin will carry the decals in Sunday’s race. Michael and Darrell Waltrip held a charity golf tournament last year and Feed The Children was among the beneficiaries. AP PHOTO

Hall Inductees Former Sprint Cup champion Dale Jarrett and master mechanic Maurice Petty headline the latest group of inductees in the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Dale Jarrett Wednesday joined his father Ned in the hall while Maurice becomes the fourth member of the storied Petty family to get in. Tim Flock won two NASCAR titles in the 1950s and was elected. Jack Ingram was a champion in NASCAR’s Late Model Sportsman division, the precursor to what’s now the Nationwide Series. The final Hall of Famer was Fireball Roberts, who won 33 times from 1950 until his death in 1964 that came weeks after a crash in Charlotte.

10 things to know about Indy 500 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The 97th running of the Indianapolis 500 is Sunday with a wide-open field and a pair of drivers trying to join the elite list of four-time winners. Two Americans start on the front row, along with Carlos Munoz, an unknown Indy 500 newcomer who grew up idolizing Juan Pablo Montoya a fellow Colombian who won “The Greatest Spectacle In Racing” as a rookie. Lurking back in the sixth row are Scott Dixon, Dario Franchitti and Takuma Sato, the three drivers who raced for the win last year. Here’s 10 things to know about Sunday’s race: • FOUR TIMERS There are two drivers trying to win their fourth Indianapolis 500 to join an exclusive club that currently only has three members. Rick Mears was the last driver to win a fourth Indy 500, joining A.J. Foyt and Al Unser Sr. in the group in 1991. Now 22 years later, both Franchitti and Helio Castroneves have a shot Sunday at grabbing win No. 4. Franchitti is the defending race winner, while Castroneves picked up his third victory in 2009. • FAMILY CURSE? Marco Andretti will start on the front row in third, the highest starting spot of his career. No matter how Andretti starts his season, he always goes into the Indy 500 as a contender because of his race craft at the speedway. It just so happens, though, that Andretti is off to the best start of his career this year and is second in the standings. He also feels far more confident about his chances this year than he did last season when he said the race was “mine to lose.” He’ll be trying to break the “Andretti Curse” that has plagued the family and made Mario Andretti’s 1969 victory their only win. • BAR SET HIGH Last year’s race was considered one of the best in Indy 500 history as Franchitti, Sato and Dixon raced down the stretch for the win. Sato spun and wrecked as he attempted to pass Franchitti on the final lap, and the Scot sailed o his third victory. Dixon finished second and Tony Kanaan wound up third as three of Dan Wheldon’s closest friends swept the podium on a day dedicated to the late driver. It set the bar high for Sunday, but three different winners in the first four races of the season has raised expectations that this year’s race could

be another thriller. • AJ’S GOAL AJ Allmendinger is making his Indy 500 debut seven years after he left open-wheel racing for NASCAR. He had the best job of his career with Roger Penske when he was suspended last July by NASCAR for failing a random drug test. Penske has given Allmendinger a second chance in IndyCar and there are some who believe he’s got a solid chance to win on Sunday. Allmendinger starts fifth, but his Penske Racing teammates believe he’s got the best car of the group and has deftly handled traffic all month. Allmendinger figures if he wins the race, Penske will have to add more races to his schedule. So far, next week’s doubleheader at Detroit is all Allmendinger has planned this season. • GOOD WILL HUNTING Will Power went into the Indy 500 last year riding the momentum of three straight victories. He’s not won a race since, though, and said this has been the most low-key month of his career because he’s ranked 18th in the IndyCar standings. His races this year have been plagued by problems no fault of his own. The tone was set in the season-opener at St. Pete, where J.R. Hildebrand hit Power’s car while under caution. Although Power has 16 career victories, he’s never won on an oval and has never won an IndyCar championship leading him to lament he’s never won anything important. A win Sunday would take care of that. • USA, USA The field of 33 cars has a red, white and blue feel this year with 11 Americans in the race. Leading the charge is Ed Carpenter, the local guy who starts on the pole for Sunday’s race. An American driver has not won this race since Sam Hornish Jr. in 2006. Four-time winner Foyt has an American in the field with newcomer Conor Daly, and believes an American winner would give the race and the series a boost. “I think what made Indy as great as it was before (was) that 90% of the drivers were American drivers,” Foyt said. “I think that’s where everybody builds a big fan base. Our hero is going to Indianapolis, and we want to follow him.” • HONDA vs CHEVY It seems to be deja vu for engine manufacturer Chevrolet, which dominated all the practice sessions for a second consecutive year. But it was

Honda who claimed the big prize last season, with signs that it had some more speed on Carburation Day. It happened again this year as Honda driver Simon Pagenaud shot to the top of the speed chart in the final practice session, and Honda drivers claimed six of the top 10 spots. • PRIDE OF JAPAN Among the Honda drivers who has a chance to win Sunday is Sato, the current IndyCar points leader. He became the first Japanese-born driver to win an IndyCar race last month at Long Beach, and he nearly won Brazil until James Hinchcliffe snatched the victory away with a pass in the final turn. Sato is trying to overcome last year’s nightmare finish in which he went for the win on the final lap but spun as he tried to pass Franchitti. • GIRL POWER There are a series-tying four women in Sunday’s field after Katherine Legge arrived last week, pieced together a deal to drive a third car for Sam Schmidt and qualified it in the field on her first day back in an Indy car since last September’s season finale. It remains to be seen just how competitive the women are on race day. Legge was eighth fastest on Carb Day, but it’s Simona de Silvestro who may have the best chance to run up front. Driving for KV Racing this year, she’s shown speed with a Chevrolet engine and nearly scored a podium finish at St. Pete. Ana Beatriz and Pippa Mann are the other two women in the field. The stakes were raised by Danica Patrick, who qualified fourth in her 2005 debut and became the first woman to lead laps at Indy. • HOME SWEET HOME There’s a familiar feel to the Indy 500 this year as Jim Nabors returns to sing “Back Home Again in Indiana” a year after missing the race because of heart surgery. A video was shown of him performing the song at his home in Hawaii was aired instead. Florence Henderson, an Indiana native who played Carol Brady on TV’s “Brady Bunch,” traditionally sings “God Bless America” is skipping the race because of illness. Indiana singer-songwriter Jon McLaughlin will perform instead. Christian music singer Sandi Patty will perform the national anthem for a record sixth time, and San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, a former Colts quarterback who is part-time owner of Panther Racing, will drive the pace car.

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Danica Patrick still follows the Indianapolis 500 closely, even pre-organizing her race day schedule this Sunday so she can watch most of the event. As for participating in the race again, that’s a different story. Patrick, who first earned her popularity in open-wheel racing, said her focus is on the Sprint Cup series and the chances of her running at the Indy 500 become “less and less likely with each passing year.” “Each year my desire to race there is less and less and my apprehension grows higher and higher,” Patrick told The Associated Press earlier this week. Patrick said she briefly contemplated pulling “double duty” this year and racing in the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Coca 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on the same day just as her current team owner Tony Stewart has done in the past. But Patrick thought better of the idea. “I thought this year was going to happen, but it’s just not going to be helpful for my Cup career,” said Patrick, who has run the Indy 500 seven times. “And at the end of the day that’s the most important thing.”

Hero’s welcome for Zanardi INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Alex Zanardi received a hero’s welcome at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the famed race track where he has never turned a single lap. The beloved Italian was greeted warmly wherever he went Friday after he was feted by former team owner Chip Ganassi, who presented Zanardi with the car called “Old Midnight” that Zanardi was driving in 1996 when he made a legendary pass of Bryan Herta in the corkscrew at Laguna Seca. Ganassi, the gruff Pittsburgh native not known for his sentimental side, had tears in his eyes several times during the presentation on The Yard of Bricks and again as he simply sat back and listened to Zanardi speak. “To say the words ‘passion’ and ‘commitment’ and ‘excellence’ and all the things I grew up with, that meant something, I think he embodies every one of those,” Ganassi said. “It’s not about the reality TV or anything with Zanardi. He embodies what we would like every athlete to be, every athlete we look up to. I think Alex Zanardi embodies every one of those qualities.” Zanardi lost both of his legs in a 2001 crash during a CART race in Germany, but has taken up hand cycling and won three gold medals in the London Paralympic Games last summer. “He’s had some real accomplishments since he’s not been in racing,” Ganassi said.
